My wife and I were frequent visitors to Five Leaves when we lived in Greenpoint. Next to Peter Pan doughnuts & Lomzianka (sp?) it's probably my favorite spot for food in the area. The flash fried oyster app is always great, the oysters are tender & sweet, the fry batter is light and perfectly seasoned. As good as the menu is, I'm not gonna lie, I usually go for the burger. I'm a burger fiend and this guy is one of the best I've ever had. You have to get it fully set up with the pickled beet & fried egg on top -- holy man I'm getting hungry just thinking about it. The fries are thick & delicious as well. Just beware, it's a busy place and not very big, so you may want to arrive early to avoid a long wait. Also, the only true negative is their use of very uncomfortable metal folding chairs. I mean, what gives?
